Lainey Wilson became a member of the Grand Ole Opry on June 7, after being surprised by the news that came from Reba McEntire.

It's safe to say that everyone in the country community is overjoyed with that news, as everyone seems to be a Wilson fan.

Garth Brooks + Trisha Yearwood Speak Out About Lainey Wilson's Grand Ole Opry Induction

Although McEntire invited Wilson to become a member of the Opry, it was Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood who officially inducted Wilson on June 7.

During the induction ceremony, Yearwood said, "You get it. You know what it means to love country music. You love the Grand Ole Opry, and that's what it's all about."

The "She's In Love With the Boy" singer continued. "When I think about the future of country music, I know with you in it, we're gonna be okay."

After the induction, Brooks had something to add on his Studio G podcast. He compared Wilson to country icon Reba McEntire.

The "The Thunder Rolls" singer said:

"She's the first woman, probably since Reba, that you look at and go, this woman is gonna be around for a long, long time. She's a current fad that's going to last 40 years."

For someone like Wilson, getting the stamp of approval like this from McEntire, Brooks and Yearwood means more to her than we might ever know.

Wilson turned to TikTok the day after her induction into the Opry and expressed all of her emotions.

There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Wilson will continue to have an epic career, and having the stamp approval from Brooks and Yearwood certainly helps.
